Día de los Muertos Ofrendas Group Exhibition

November 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember, and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed. On this day in Mexico, the streets near the cemeteries are filled with decorations of papel picado, flowers, candy calaveras (skeletons and skulls), and parades. In addition to local artists and organizations who share their artistic interpretations of the tradition, this year’s exhibit will feature a special photography collection on loan from the Mexican Consulate of Milwaukee, La Muerte en La Piel by Mauricio Silerio. These photographs depict scenes from the traditional celebrations in Mexico.
